Got Wood?

We all know him, along with a whole lot of other “wooden” people, except we know when this one is lying. Pinocchio, brought to life by Disney, was created by an Italian writer, Carlo Collodi, a journalist who presented his character very differently than Disney’s film. His book “The Adventures of Pinocchio” shows him not charming, but as a very bad boy, who ends up tragically, an ending I prefer.
